K4 exercised this week with yarn balls. We started class with a movement song called Singing In the Rain. We then manipulated the yarn balls by ctaching them, tossing clapping and catching them, etc. We finished class playing the activity called Monster. Here we pretended the yarnballs were candy and the monster wanted to catch them and eat the candy.
K5 this week participated in Monster Tag again. Here I picked several students to hide in my office. This is the Monster Cage. I then played some spooky music and had the Monters come out and crawl after their classmates. We celebrated fire safety week with an activity called Stop, Drop, and Roll. Here we reviewed what to do if we are on fire or if our house is on fire. The students who were fire fighters got to wear fire fighter hats. I used red foam balls for fire and black foam balls for smoke. This is a game the student really enjoyed.
2nd grade this week got their personal fitness in with an activity called Step Right Up. Here each student got a chance to be a Physical Educaion Teacher. We then discussed the skill of over hand throwing and played an activity to practice this skill called Jail Bird.
4th grade this week began learning about the five levels of fitness. This week we learned about Cardiovascular Endurance (CV). We then participated in a CV activity called Odd and Even Tag ( A big dice game). We finished class playing another CV activity called Sharks and Minnows.
